Swagbucks: Get $55 for trying out Blue Apron
- Get $55 back in Swagbucks for trying out a Blue Apron food subscription plan.
Blue Apron is a recipe-delivery/food-planning service which delivers fresh ingredients weekly for you to cook and prepare meals yourself. Swagbucks typically offers a $5 bonus for trying out the service, and now it’s increased to $55. Blue Apron allows you to cancel the plan at any time so there’s no long-term subscription here, just a weekly cost will be charged unless you cancel.
The Fine Print
- SB will appear as Pending for 32 days. (Reader says they should show up as pending after a couple of hours.)
- Offer only available to new Blue Apron customers.
- If you make a purchase without having a genuine interest in the product/service being offered, any SB awarded will be revoked and your Swagbucks account may be terminated for violation of our terms requiring honest and legitimate member behavior.
I’m honestly a bit confused by the details of this offer, but here’s my best guess: sign up for any Blue Apron plan and you’ll get $55 cash back from Swagbucks. The cheapest Blue Apron plan is a discounted rate of $24.45 for your first week for 2 meals for 2 people. (After the first week, price will be $51.95 per week.) This means that the $55 Swagbucks more than covers your first week’s cost. There’s also a signup offer on Blue Apron to get 5 meals with your first two orders. Maybe that means that if you pay for your second week (cost of at least $51.95) you’ll get a bonus 5 meals free. Hopefully someone who understands Blue Apron better than me will chime in and explain in more detail. Should be a nice opportunity to try out the service if it’s something that interests you.
Update: Readers have clarified, the way it works is that the first two weeks get the discounted $24.45 rate and the 5 free meals just means the $55 in Swagbucks money (since a meal is typically $11). It’s not clear if you need to keep the subscription for two weeks (which would end up as 8 free meals + $6 moneymaker for the first two orders) or if you can get the $55 Swagbucks from even a single week. Some have gotten the Swagbucks pending right away which might indicate that even a single $24.45 week triggers the Swagbucks.
A couple things to keep in mind:
- Remember to cancel if you decide to discontinue the subscription. Website states clearly that there’s no obligation and you can skip or cancel any time.
- Bear in mind that some people end up having problems either with the portal tracking or with Swagbucks deactivating their account for reasons which aren’t clear, so keep the risks in mind.
